Trey Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists, part of another stellar offensive performance from No. 2 Michigan in a 95-67 win over Iowa on Sunday. Glenn Robinson III added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolverines, who had only 17 points with 7:00 remaining in the first half before overwhelming the Hawkeyes (11-4, 0-2 Big Ten) with a flurry of dunks, 3-pointers and other highlights. Michigan (15-0, 2-0) is a win away from matching the program's best start to a season. The 1985-86 team began 16-0. Devyn Marble scored 14 points for the Hawkeyes, who were holding opponents to 37 percent shooting before facing Michigan. The Wolverines shot 58 percent from the field and 10 of 22 from 3-point range. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points for Michigan. The Wolverines aren't a team that tries to force the tempo, but they routed Northwestern 94-66 on Thursday and beat Iowa by the same margin. It was the fourth straight game in which Michigan made at least 10 shots from 3-point range. Iowa lost by only four against Indiana on Monday, and the Hawkeyes raced out to a 7-0 lead over Michigan. It was an erratic start for the Wolverines, but their latest offensive clinic began soon enough. Michigan trailed 21-17 when Burke lobbed the ball to Robinson on the break for a dunk. A 3-pointer by Hardaway gave Michigan a 26-23 lead, but Marble answered with a rare four-point play at the other end. That stemmed the tide only momentarily. Freshman Mitch McGary blocked a shot for Michigan, leading to a transition layup by Burke and a 33-29 lead. Moments later, Hardaway threw down a one-handed dunk off a bounce pass from Burke to make it 42-35. Robinson finished the half by barely beating the buzzer for a layup that gave the Wolverines a 46-35 advantage. Hardaway opened the second half with a 3-pointer. Freshman Nik Stauskas drove for a dunk and scored on a spin move. Hardaway made another 3-pointer and Iowa coach Fran McCaffery subbed a whole new team of five players into the game. It was 58-40 after Burke's acrobatic bank shot, and at that point, Michigan had scored 41 points in under 11 minutes. There was more to come -- another alley-oop dunk by Robinson from Burke and a perimeter shot by Burke after a slick crossover dribble. Once the Wolverines started rolling, there wasn't much Iowa could do. Burke found Robinson inside for yet another dunk to make it 77-50, and Michigan led by as many as 35.
